Butterfly Hugs Card

I know some of you may be too cold so I thought this card would make you smile and get you thinking about Spring.  I know, it will be some time but you can still dream.  I love the cold (I know, in the south I am strange) so a snowman would be nice, but I understand so here you are:

  • Card Base: Whisper White Cardstock - 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”; 2” x 4” (use the scalloped tag to punch out the top). Stamp the saying in Calypso Coral Ink. Place Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of this piece. Tie a small piece of ribbon through the top slit and tie it off with a small piece of White Baker’s Twine.
  • Mat 1: Calypso Coral - 4 1/8” x 5 3/8”
  • Mat 2: Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper - 4” x 5 ¼”
  • Adhere the two mat pieces together and then to the card base.
  • Use the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and make a ‘sandwich’ in this order: standard platform, a standard cutting pad, the small butterfly die with a piece of Calypso Coral Cardstock, and the other standard cutting pad. Run this ‘sandwich’ through the machine.


  • Adhere the butterfly to the Whisper White stamped panel. And then adhere the panel to the front of the card. Place an embellishment in the middle of the butterfly.
